With Haywire coming out, Entertainment Weekly
have gone back to the well with a poll
on the above topic. Results so far, pretty much predictable and very Hollywood-centric:
Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley in the 'Alien' saga 27.40%
Uma Thurman as The Bride (aka Beatrix Kiddo) in 'Kill Bill: Vol. 1' & 'Kill Bill: Vol. 2' 20.01%
Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor in 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' 14.98%
Chloe Moretz as Hit Girl in 'Kick-Ass' 7.04%
Kate Beckinsale as Selene in 'Underworld' series 5.18%
Michelle Yeoh as Yu Shu Lien in 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' 4.58%
Noomi Rapace as Lisbeth Salander in 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' (2009) 4.32%
Carrie-Ann Moss as Trinity in 'The Matrix' trilogy 4.22%
Mila Jovovich as Alice in the 'Resident Evil' films 3.27%
Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft in 'Tomb Raider' 3.47%
Saoirse Ronin as Hanna in 'Hanna' 1.96%
Anne Parillaud as Nikita in 'La Femme Nikita' (1990) 1.56%
The problem with these polls is that of those that vote, very few if any will have seen all the movies listed and therefore the movies that have been seen most will most likely top the poll.
The list will also be limited to movies that the list compiler/s has seen or remembers.
There are of course gaping holes in the Foreign movies with only 2 non English speaking movies making the list......and those happen to have English speaking remakes made of them.
But even in the English speaking movies big omissions include:
Angelinia Jolie in Salt
Jennifer Garner as Electra in Daredevil
Sienna Guillory as Jill Valentine in the Resident Evil Movies
Rhona Mitra as Eden Sinclair in Doomsaday
Olga Kurylenko as Etain in Centurion
Zoe Saldana as Cataleya Restrepo in Columbiana
& All the Sucker Punch babes!
So how comprehensive was that E weekly poll...........not very it seems!
